Richard McCann was just five when his mother Wilma was murdered by Sutcliffe. A new ITV drama “The Long Shadow” follows the five-year hunt for Sutcliffe, which was one of the largest manhunts in British history.
Ms McCann’s son, Richard, appeared on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday.
He said: “I let go of the anger and the need for revenge in 2010 when I met Desmond Tutu. We spoke about forgiveness and I let go of that and forgave him.”
